we have seen in the last ten years the presidents despite george w. bush's presidency trying to actually almost by themselves in foreign policy. domestic affairs, if you read the papers, there is not a lot of discussion about the role of the president in domestic affairs. you would be surprised to see the kind of president we had today in this area. they thought the president would be a check on congress and not somebody urging and pushing congress to enact the president's program. alexander hamilton said the executive is necessary to protect against the irregular and high-handed combinations that interrupt the ordinary coarse of justice. i love this phrase. the humors of the legislature. i guess this is why they elected that. you lock at the discussion of the veto power and the federalist papers, it's not talked about as this sword by the president to convince the congress to enact his or her program. it is discussed as the president to protect its own constitutional authorities and to furnish an additional security about the enaction of improper laws and laws that would be

system is more point than the structures that a republican congress was happy to give george w. bush authority. that was based on the u.n. resolution. i think if we're going to talk about checking and balancing then, i'm not sure how one does it, but to rely on congress vigorously to assert its own pe interrogato per interrogatoritives against the president of their own power doesn't work. it hasn't been accurate since 1800. >> i was going to say i don't think even people in congress want to fix the war powers resolution problem. it's a convenient symbol that congress was doing something about war power as a way to avoid doing the things that congress could do. you could cut off funds or not pay for any of the conflicts. libya might have been so small you might be able to wage the whole thing. the other thing is about the political party thing. kosovo is interesting because president clinton went to war, went beyond the 60-day clock. congress was controlled by the other party. one of the ten things in a contractor was repeal the war powers resolution. you had a case where president

"i have gray hair," he added. "people are disappointed because they had a vision of change happening immediately and turns out it's hard." one of the callers recorded the conversation. >> john: we are hearing about travel arrangements for romney? >> he was slated to attend the summer olympics in london. we have confirmed that he plans to visit israel this summer for the sec
point out to you, george w. bush released 10 years. george hw bush released 14 years. and bob dole released 30 years. mitt romney has only released one. how is that the standard? >> well, good morning to you, as well, norah. as to the two years, he released one year going back and then also the estimate that he has for this year. so that's two at least prel preliminarily on the second year. >> but we don't know how much taxes he paid on 2011. >> not yet, but he said he would release those going forward. and as to the standard that you mentioned, the practice has varied. you cited some examples of some. but there's others who have only gone back a few years. but the larger point is this. there is no claim or no credible indication that mitt romney has done anything wrong. he's within the range of past practice and custom. but number two, why is the media focused on this issue, 10, 15-year-old tax returns or college transcripts, when we should be focused on the larger issues and the main issues in this race? >> is governor rick perry a member of the media? >> i'm sorry? >> governor r

possible by the chief justice john roberts appointed by george w. bush, and believed up until recently to be a conservative. there's a fascinating piece by cbs news sort of unwinding how this came to be in it. in it, i'm quoting now, roberts pays attention to media coverage. he's sensitive to how the court is perceived by the public. do you think it's possible that after reading weeks of "new york times" editorials attacking him preemptively for ruling against obamacare, chief justice roberts decided to rule it constitutional? >> i think that's possible, tucker. i don't know the guy. it certainly is possible. but, you know, i look at that decision, and as much as i hate it with every fiber of my being, because it's an immoral, horrible, euthanasia law. i believe fundamentally when he said i'm affirming the individual mandate, he gave us each of us an individual mandate to defeat barack obama, retake the senate, and repeal this law. he basically said, i'm not going to do your job for you. go out in the streets, win this election, do it like we do it in a democracy, and then you repeal t
. it is not angels vs. doubles but there is a difference. look after 2000 george w. bush's elected. after the most controversial election and 100 years, 36 days to decide, in a weekend position losing the popular vote to, it would be easy for democrats to stop from the beginning damage the weekend presidency but the first thing he pushed to the initiatives. no child left behind and tax cuts. that moved through in a mottled bipartisan fashion coming from miller and kennedy. you could say they like the policy but in doing so they gave legitimacy to bush and made the presidency stronger. it enabled the tax cuts to go through. then we had 9/11. some was controversial but almost unanimous support then you move to the t.a.r.p rejected by republicans and democrats saved the bacon. first president came in without great momentum from clinton and 1993. every republican votes that economic plan then a series of programs including health care with a conscious effort he could not get what he wanted. he could not keep the democrats together but a significant difference then move up at 2009. a president elected
, buts a lot of that falls on george w. bush and the no child left behind. >> nice try. >> thank you. i think i succeeded. >> not so sure. >> blame bush for everything. >> that's when i do. >> you are on a roll. >> that's true though, right? >> bush started standardized test ?g. >> no, no child left behind. >> standardized testing is the disease. we can talk about that without saying bush made a regulation that made more standardized testing. that is the regular in our school. who started standardized testing? >> don't tell me what a disease is. i happen to be an expert in all manner of diseases. >> brooke, let me quote from bush's assistant secretary of education who in 2010 decided she didn't like it. she said, quote, instead of raiding standards, no child left behind actually lowered standards because many states have dumbed down their test or changed the scoring to say more kids are passing than actually r. >> okay, fine, but that is irrelevant to the story we were discussing. >> how is that irrelevant to the story? the story is that kids are saying school is too easy. i'm saying pa

, but she's no stranger to presidential politics. by george w. bush's side during his campaigns. she's an intellectual with a good personal story. and a concert pianist. the former secretary of state and national security advisor would bring some needed foreign policy chops to romney's ticket, which brings us to the condi cons. she was a central bush administration player making the case for the iraq war, warning about saddam hussein's weapons of mass destruction that turned out not to exist. >> there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons. but we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud. >> reporter: some gop sources tell cnn they can't imagine romney would want to reopen wounds from the bush years. last but hardly least, rice's stance on abortion. she calls herself "mildly pro-choice". >> i worry about the government being involved in, but i'm like most americans. i think abortion is a terrible thing. >> reporter: one anti-abortion group already e-mailed around this clip of romney last year saying the running mates he would conside

months and bill clinton won. in 2004 was 197,000 jobs, president george w. bush won. in 2012, average job growth in the first six months is 150,000, and that puts president obama right in the middle of this. an update on the mystery surrounding illinois commerce man jesse jackson junior and his leave of absence. the congressman's office said his illness were more serious than previously thought and he needs extended inpatient treatment. he faced some questions after he was absent from the house floor for two weeks last month. no details are being provided on the exact condition or where he is seeking treatment. new developments on the trayvon martin case. lawyers for george zimmerman are appealing to his supporters. this comes hours after the judge set his bond at a million dollars. the bond was initially set at $150,000. the judge revoked that after william zimmerman and his wife attempted to deceive the court about their finances, specifically money raised from online supporters. new developments in the story of a fourth of july celebration that ended in tragedy. police identified three
out in 2000 and 2004, i think george w. bush in 2000, would -- early in the campaign it seems to me, i remember him going to one inner city stop after another inner city stop and we were all scratching our heads why are they doing it, they weren't doing it to win votes in the inner city, they were doing it to win votes in the philadelphia suburbs. >> because in the philadelphia suburbs they like a compassionate conservative which mitt romney has proved he's not this campaign. >> has he proven that? >> those primaries, i -- i think did it. but on the theory that 90% of life is showing up, it was a good thing to go. a good thing he went. he had the opportunity to show the nonindependent voter that he wasn't going to go all wobbly. the people he's still going to protect are people like him. and he -- right there in the lion's den he said i'm not going to protect you. >> jon meacham, you talked about historical trends, we both talked about how this duopoly of parties that's been around for 150 years is sure to crack, for a lot of younger americans it may be hard to believe, but african-ame

outraged, nor should he have been, that george w. bush smoked a little weed when he was a young man, and wouldn't ever, ever answer questions about whether he used cocaine, but did admit to being an alcoholic. so smoking a little weed, maybe doing cocaine, and actually being an alcoholic are completely cool with rush, as long as it's a republican we're talking about. but barack obama smoking a little weed should be something that is used against him, should disqualify him from the presidency. rush is, of course, lying about this. rush doesn't think there's anything wrong with smoking a little weed in college. rush completely understands that choice, just as he understands much more intense relationships with illicit drugs, like his own relationship with drugs. rush limbaugh is a drug addict. a drug addict whose habit got him in trouble with the law. a drug addict whose high-priced lawyers made a deal to get him into rehab, to avoid prosecution on a drug felony that he was arrested for. rush limbaugh hates barack obama. he hates him. his hatred infuses every syllable he seethes about
